"She is the woman."
Translation:Hun er kvinden.
I can't entirely tell the difference when this program pronounces kvind and kvinden. Is there a difference in pronounciation?
There is a small difference. Kvinden will end with your tongue touching the roof of your mouth. Kvinde ends with space between them.
O, thank you. It is almost unreal to hear the difference when you just started learning, but I'll try.
Hopefully this doesnt confuse much, but I can make a few bullet points to sort things a bit... Note that there are some exceptions!
The indefinite article, a, in english can be expressed using the Danish, en, et, -e, or -er depending on gender or plurality -common gender (car/woman) -singular (a car/a woman) -en bil -en kvinde -plural (cars/women) -biler -kvinder -neuter gender (book/house) -singular (a book/a house) -et bog -et hus -plural (books/houses) -boger -huse
At any rate, this should be a good start in learning when to use the words en, et and the suffixes.

I typed "hun er kvindet" but it said I was correct. Is this a valid alternative? Or is there an error in the program?
Technically there are, because for example the verb at være takes the form "er" in the present tense for all persons. All persons are conjugated the same. Look here:
